They addled me to take on the role of eagle mentor, I helped give boys attain their eagle rank.

    All without ever having sex. In fact I was a virgin until I was 22. I don't find children sexually attractive, they are children, I don't really talk about sex with them, I have no need to. Some know that I have a husband, they don't really care, that is what out means to not be bothered by homosexuals

    And boys are typically targeted because they don't talk about it, they are ashamed, normally because of the ignorant crap that the fools who are afraid of the 3% of the population because of ignorance. Meanwhile nothing is said about the 97% of the population that is way more likely to be in proximity of a child.

    Definitely, little boys would feel shame because of the "gay" factor.

    Sorry Chris, but what does average age of the population have to do with notions about the age of consent?




    Ah, maybe if you had linked to the page you are quoting from, it would have answered my question

    Median Age of First Marriage

    However, the one - median age of first marriage - does not equate in any shape, fashion or form with the prevalence of paedophilia in the late 19th Century. The changes in "age of consent laws" came about because efforts to reduce the surprising numbers of those we call children today who were active in prostitution during much of the Victorian Era.


    Also "median" means half of all marriages were with people of less than the ages posted, with no bottom number provided.

    Not to mention the abuser normally in the manipulation of the child will tell them that they are gay, and perverted, sometimes the abuse may notfeel unpleasant to the boy, yet another way that boys are typically victimized multiple times, or crhonic.

    It's grossly exaggerated that people married children.

    We are talking past each other

    You bring up marriage and my point concerns the "age of consent" which had something to do with marriage but more to do with what age was considered acceptable for sex in the late 19th Century. Which goes back to the whole paedophilia thing, because 150 years ago, an adult male having sex with a child of 12 or 13 was considered acceptable - today it is not. Today we know a lot more about the psychological effects of such sexual encounters and realise just how negative such experiences can be on a person as they grow up, or don't in some cases.

    More on the crusade to increase the age of consent in Victorian England

    Despite efforts by homosexual activists to distance the gay lifestyle from pedophilia, there remains a disturbing connection between the two. This is because, by definition, male homosexuals are sexually attracted to other males.

    But if one of my sons told me he was gay..he would get my full support..it would be his choice..not an indoctrination..
    What you said here makes no sense. Just because someone is attracted to someone of the same sex, does not mean that they are attracted to children.

    Seriously, where do people come up with these crazy ****ing ideas?

    Because they may not be interested in what the girl scouts do and may be more interested in what the boy scouts do.
